Beat back the darkness with a PEC security light


November 4 is the official end of Daylight Savings time. That means the sun sets earlier in the evening, and People’s Electric members may find themselves returning home in the dark.


To brighten your entrance, protect your property, and enhance safety, consider installing a security light. PEC offers high pressure sodium security lights that will light up your property and make it safer.


For more details, please call 1-877-456-3031 (outside Ada, inside service area) or locally, dial (580) 332-3031. Also visit us online at www.peopleselectric. coop/securitylights .


Lighting your dark nights LET’S SAVE ENERGY TOGETHER Fall into energy savings by Madeline Keimig Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives


As scarves and light jackets leave closets this fall, be ready to cut the chill and your energy bill with these seasonal tips:


• Set your thermostat no higher than 68 degrees and be sure to lower the temperature when you go to bed or are not at home. This saves money and keeps you warm. 0610902400


• During the day, open shades and curtains to allow solar heating. Close them at night to retain the day’s heat.


• Check your home’s weather stripping for air leaks around doors, windows, baseboards, and wherever pipes, wires, and vents enter the house. Make sure the warm air you paid for won’t escape.


• Have your heating system serviced by contractor who has a certification through the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) program, and replace furnace filters at least once every three months. 0400400500 Clean filters once a month during the heating season to keep the system at peak performance.

Your kitchen can yield big energy savings. Check the refrigerator door seal for a tight fit. Run only full dishwasher loads, and use the microwave rather than oven to reheat food and make small meals. Finally, unplug small appliances when not in use—many draw power even when turned off.
